The Gift That Keeps on Giving

China--handed to Mao Tse Tung by our Communist penetrated State Department in the 1940s--issues another edict:
Chinese web surfers could soon be restricted from accessing video internet sites like YouTube after the government has said they are cracking down on the 'broadcast of degenerate thinking'.

China has decided to restrict the broadcasting of internet videos to sites run by state-controlled companies and will require providers to report questionable content to the government.

....Under the new policy, websites that provide videos or allow users to upload video must obtain government permits and applicants must be either state-owned or state-controlled companies.

....The policy will ban providers from broadcasting video that involves national secrets, hurts the reputation of China, disrupts social stability or promotes pornography.

Providers will be required to delete and report such content.

The rules state: "Those who provide internet video services should insist on serving the people, serve socialism and abide by the moral code of socialism."
